Alongside the devastating human cost of the virus and the unfathomable impact on the global economy, Covid-19 has led to a pandemic of plastic pollution. The demand for single-use personal protective equipment (PPE), disposable wipes, gloves and masks, cleaning agents and hand sanitiser is at a record high – and unfortunately so are the negative impacts on the environment, with items to landfill soaring.

The pandemic will change the way we plan and execute events, adapting to the new ways of living and socialising. As we look towards the start of live events, and find ways to rebuild and recover, we have a window of opportunity to shape the future of experiences.

This guide is a framework for identifying the ‘New Normal’ and proposing ways to ‘Lower Your Impact’. It is a tool to support you in navigating and exploring more sustainable ways of working.
